Here's another Deadline report for last night's episode ratings...
History’s ‘Hatfields & McCoys’ Breaks More Cable RecordsIf you missed this epic miniseries (shame on you! just kidding, lol. But really, it was a great western drama miniseries with a great ensemble cast headed by brilliant veteran actors in Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton. The supporting cast did equally great and I must say our girl, Jena Malone was A+mazing! in her supporting role as Nancy McCoy. She did a phenomenal performance in a difficult role. She had to portray hate, deceit, love, and revenge and did so believably and amazingly. I was quite impressed with her acting...as I've always been with her other films (good or not, she was always one of the best things on those films) even in P&P movie as Lydia Bennet, she did great, but she was even more amazing in this one as Nancy...Lydia has nothing on her, haha!!), History Channel is showing repeats of the following episodes (why part 1's not included in the upcoming schedule of its encore presentations, I have no idea, but that's what's listed on the H&M website on the History Channel)...

The Hatfield-McCoy saga centers on “Devil” Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy. Close friends and comrades during the Civil War, they returned to their neighboring homes — Hatfield in West Virginia, McCoy just across the Tug River border in Kentucky — to increasing tensions, misunderstandings and resentments that soon exploded into all-out warfare between the families. As hostilities grew, friends, neighbors and outside forces joined the fight, bringing the two states to the brink of another Civil War.
